Communicate With Your Neighbors

Depending on your neighborhood, you may want to let everyone know that we’ll be around. This gives them the chance to adjust their schedules and be prepared for any noise from the job site.

If you live in a neighborhood where parking is an issue, this also alerts them that there will be extra traffic and that you’ll have to park somewhere else — maybe in front of a neighbor’s yard — for the day.

Start Time

Especially in the summer, we have early start times to avoid the scorching Vernon temperatures. Be prepared for an early start, and know that we’ll get in touch with you to determine our estimated time of arrival.

It’s also important to know that you don’t have to be available when we get there, but please ensure there is access to your backyard. If you have any questions, we’re always available to help.

VIP Parking

On the day of installation, we’ll need access to all the prime parking spots, namely the driveway. Parking on the street the day before will help us out greatly.

The driveway is where we park our roofing equipter which keeps the job site clean and tidy and limits falling debris.

Move Outdoor Furniture & Outdoor Decorations

The roofing equipter provides us with access to a dumpster as it catches our shingles in the tearing off process, but in the case that any debris doesn’t make it into the roofing equipter, we recommend moving any garden decor or patio furniture to prevent damage.

This also helps prevent worksite injuries by limiting any tripping hazards the crew might encounter.

Keep Small Children & Pets Indoors

For safety purposes, please keep kids and pets away from the worksite. We absolutely don’t mind you watching the roof installation from a safe distance like across the street or from the windows.

Pets can often be bothered by the commotion that a new roof brings, so if they’re sensitive to sounds or unfamiliar people, you may want to keep your dog at a friend’s or family’s house for the day.

Use Caution Walking Outside

If you can, one of the best things to do is to plan a day away from home the day that we’re there. Not only do you avoid loud noises, but you also avoid any potential safety issues.

While we will work out a safety zone for you to safely enter and exit your home, we want to make sure that everyone is safe and protected.

Beyond our roofing equipter, we also make it a priority to thoroughly clean up the site after we’re finished. All debris will be removed, and we’ll use a magnetic roller throughout your yard to pick up any stray nails.

The Conventional Builders’ Difference

Communication is a priority at Conventional Builders, and we want you to be informed of what we’re doing every step of the way. From the initial scheduling to the day we arrive to install your new roof, keeping you in the loop is important.

With the experience Conventional Builders has when it comes to new roof installations in Vernon, there are a couple of ways homeowners can prepare for us such as moving cars and keeping pets and children indoors.

We appreciate your consideration and can’t wait to install your new roof!
